Your son can make this purchase online since he will be responsible for the payments and it will be under his name and the credit check will be for him

your online system does not allow me to purchase it with my credit card and have the plan in his name or the phone sent to him....see my issue?

This is because it will be under your son's name.  Otherwise I would be able to fraudulently open a bunch of accounts under your name and ruin your credit when you unaware that you signed up for these phone plans.

Your best bet is to send your son a money transfer and have him sign up

You are not really helping me....I could have figured that out myself. Guess the Koodo way is not an option...thanks

I'm sorry. I'm not able to find a way for you to open an account under someone else's name.  Koodo has security measure in place in order to prevent this

@Chrisanne:
You are asking someone to use another person's creditcard to pay for a phone and a service. That could be a potential loophole for fraud. No carrier will do it.

You could do as Dennis mentioned, buying it under your name and ship to your son. Another way is sending him money and he will do it himself.
